Growing up in Devon, I was lucky to have a childhood immersed in nature.
As a nature lover, I worked in environmental design in the construction industry.
However, this experience opened my eyes to a soulless, corporate world of greenwash and political correctness, as well as damaging my health.
Many hours spent sedentary, in a stressed state and staring at screens left me in pain, from headaches to low energy to back pain.
Other life experiences from narcissistic abuse, heartbreak and a knife attack also increased feelings of overwhelm and anxiety.
The soul crushing feeling that I didn’t belong in this world stuck to me like glue.
My only saviour was nature.
Spending time being outdoors and active was like therapy.
But these experiences led me down a path of self improvement where I started asking deep questions: who am I, what am I doing here and what is the truth about the world?
I did not realise it at the time, but I guess I was starting a journey of awakening.
“Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins the journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of the crowd, and by choosing knowledge over veils of ignorance.”
This journey illuminated our unnatural and unhealthy way of life.
A way of life that goes against our biology and how we have evolved to live, yet has become common in society.
What I’ve now learnt is that many of the challenges I had were natural responses to living in an unnatural world.
They were just symptoms of something much deeper.
By living in accordance with nature i.e. through natural movement, natural sleeping patterns, eating whole foods and avoiding toxins, I overcame these symptoms using my mind and body to heal itself.
It doesn’t mean that I don’t have any challenges now, I most certainly do.
But I’ve realised that we have everything we need within ourselves to live a pain-free and naturally healthy life.
Now it’s my life’s purpose to help you too.
